Overview

At the center of Franco Ferrucci's God: An Autobiography is one tender, troubled character: God. In the beginning is God's solitude, and because God is lonely he creates the world. He falls in love with Earth, plunges into the oceans, lives as plant and reptile and bird. His every thought and mood serve to populate the planet, with consequences that run away from him—sometimes delightfully, sometimes unfortunately. Witty, thought-provoking, and beautifully translated, this playful and irresistible Short will leave you wondering where philosophy ends and fiction begins, while it recounts thousands of years of religious thought—and reminds you that above all else, God knows how to tell a good story.
